Nowadays, our society is in the transit to adopt more sustainable energy sources to reduce our impact on the environment; one alternative is solar energy. However, this is highly affected by the surroundings, which might cause shadowing effects. In this paper, we present our method to perform shadowing calculations in urban areas using semantic...

Neural radiance fields (NeRF) based solutions for novel view synthesis can achieve state of the art results. Recent work proposes models that take less time to render, need less training data or take up less space. However, few papers explore the use of NeRFs in classic rendering scenarios such as rasterization, which could contribute to wider...

Promoting sustainable travel involves encouraging train travel as a preferred mode of transportation. However, train travel in the Netherlands faces challenges with delays and slow speeds, including the planned Lelyline. This report explores an innovative high-speed train viaduct inspired by Chinese rail construction techniques as an attractive...

Traversability estimation is a key component in autonomous driving tasks. In many applications, semantic segmentation is used to pixel-wise classify a visual scene. The pixel-wise segmented map is used to estimate the traversability of different environments. The semantic segmentation accuracy can drop if environmental conditions change. The...

Solar energy is an important renewable energy source that is already generated by millions of solar panels attached to building roofs throughout The Netherlands. Whether a roof is suitablefor solar panels relies on its type, orientation and whether it is put in shadow by a neighbouring object. This means, the higher the solar potential of a roof...

Climate change, unfavorable geopolitical developments and resource scarcity pushes the fossil fuel based energy sector in the direction of renewable, carbon-neutral resources. The volatile nature of these, however, created new, technical needs for increased storage capacity and interconnectedness of demand and supporting grid, providing...

Although there is a common understanding that the use of variable renewable energy sources (VRES) is needed in our collective attempt to decarbonise society, the type of technology that we should deploy, and where is not so clear. Stakeholders from real-world projects use the outcomes from optimisation models to aid their decision-making process...

Public-private partnerships (PPP) is defined as a form of structured collaboration framework in the procurement strategy where risks, costs, benefits and resources are shared between public and private sector through the life-cycle of the project (Koppenjan, 2005). Previous research revealed the use of PPP is still being in question, whether the...

Light, shadow and shade are at the foundation of our cartesian understanding of 3D space. Where light falls on matter the difference in shading allows us to see this space. However, light also breaks this understanding creating the potential for a phenomenological understanding instead. Which is seen with an extradimensionality in certain...

How to deal with the presence of weather affected data is an unavoidable topic in the processing of optical imagery. Clouds and cloud shadows significantly alter the spectral signatures obtained from satellite data, which often leads to problems for any kind of scientific analysis. In this research there has been elaborated on two different kind...

Detailed shadows in large-scale environments are challenging. Our approach enables efficient detailed shadow computations for static environments at a low memory cost. It builds upon compressed precomputed multiresolution hierarchies but uses a directed acyclic graph to encode its tree structure. Further, depth values are compressed and stored...

Shadow evaporation is commonly used to micro-fabricate the key element of superconducting qubits—the Josephson junction. However, in conventional two-angle deposition circuit topology, unwanted stray Josephson junctions are created which contribute to dielectric loss. So far, this could be avoided by shorting the stray junctions with a so...

The objective of this research is to explore the possibilities in the use of digital twins towards the maintenance and operation of tunnels. This is explored by looking at the end users of the technology, to profile their needs and requirements and consider a digital twin design that focuses on this. This research is the start of a human centred...

The former military production terrain Hembrug situated in Zaandam is in decline since its closure in 2003. The terrain with over more than 100 buildings, of which 50 monuments, is in need of a new function. The assignment of the graduation project is to focus on a part of the terrain and to revitalise it with a new function. With the increasing...

Up-to-date 3D city models are needed for many applications. Very-high-resolution (VHR) images with rich geometric and spectral information and a high update rate are increasingly applied for the purpose of updating 3D models. Shadow detection is the primary step for image interpretation, as shadow causes radiometric distortions. In addition,...

Representation of scenes on the Earth surface by using voxels is gaining attention because of its suitability for integrating heterogeneous data sources in simulations and quantitative models. Computation of shadows in such models is needed, for example, to obtain crop suitability of agricultural fields in the presence of trees and buildings,...

Predicting the behavior of turbulent flows and how thermochemical properties develop such as temperature, enthalpy or concentrations is an import aspect in various fields. However, numerical calculations have a high time complexity. Therefore, models were constructed to approximate these flows. This thesis focuses on using probability density...

3D city models are now common planning and analysis tools. Urban vegetation as a feature in these models, however, is neglected overshadowed by the focus on buildings, so its inclusion in 3D city models is often symbolic. On the other hand, urban vegetation improves the comfort and social well being of a city’s inhabitants and is a resource for...

Stereoscopic 3D technology gives visual content creators a new dimension of design when creating images and movies. While useful for conveying emotion, laying emphasis on certain parts of the scene, or guiding the viewer's attention, editing stereo content is a challenging task. Not respecting comfort zones or adding incorrect depth cues, for...

Background: The VI-Suite is a free and open-source addon for the 3D content creation application Blender, developed primarily as a tool for the contextual and performative analysis of buildings. Its functionality has grown from simple, static lighting analysis to fully parametric lighting, shadowing, and building energy analyses. It adopts a...
